Wilden Unveils EZ-Install TPE Diaphragms
Wilden, a Pump Solutions Group brand, recently announced that its new line of EZ-Install TPE Diaphragms are now available on the market. The company, based in California, is a global leader of air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pump technology.
EZ-Install Diaphragms, unlike traditional diaphragms, feature an innovative design that allows operators to install the diaphragm without needing to invert it. This new design will reduce installation time, lower maintenance costs, and improve uptime.
“We created these diaphragms with the pump operator in mind,” says Robert Jack, Development Engineer, Wilden Pump and Engineering. “The convolute diaphragm shape allows them to be quickly and easily installed without inverting the diaphragms, minimizing downtime and operating costs.”
Wilden offers its EZ-Install diaphragms in a variety of materials, including Santoprene® (Wil-Flex™), Hytrel® (Saniflex™), Polyurethane and Geolast® options. Geolast, an injection-molded material, is a recent addition to Wilden’s material options. This material type is ideal for applications that require enhanced oil resistance equivalent to that of nitrile (Buna-N) at a lower cost.
EZ-Install diaphragms are available for use in Wilden’s 38 mm (1-1/2”), 51 mm (2”), 76 mm (3”) and 102 mm (4”) Original™ and Advanced™ Series AODD pumps. Pump performance and durability for all materials are equivalent to traditional diaphragm configurations. All EZ-Install diaphragm options are compatible with existing hardware.
